views as a criminal defense lawyer. a comprehensive revision of the federal criminal code should focus on five main points. reducing the number of federal crimes, ensuring that the revised code strikes a proper balance between federal and state law enforcement, clearly defining the appropriate levels of mens rea, establishing uniform rules of construction, and revising the overly harsh punishment system. i'll take those in turn. fir, reducing the number of federal offenses. the list of federal crimes has grown from handful in the crimes act of 1790, to thousands today. this has occurred in part because the country has become more complex and also occurs because everytime there's a national crisis the reaction is to enact new federal crimes. the result is a morass of overlapping statutes. the more than two dozen different -- chapter 47. seven different fraud statutes in chapter 63 and i count 19 different obstruction offenses in chapter 73 of title 18. this proliferation of federal offenses has too main practical consequences from my perspective. first of all the sheer number of crimes

of the ukraine. >> we know that the ukrainian defense minister, we just reported a little while ago, he says that the ukrainian military now is on the, quote, highest state of military readiness. is it really realistic that there could be military confrontation between ukrainian forces and invading russian forces? >> reporter: i don't think either side wants that and i think what the president and his advisors are trying to think about is two things, how do you drive up the cost to putin and how do you limit putin to go no further than he has already gone in crimea. give him some good advice, which would be restraint, don't take on the russian military unless they think twice about it. but also give them substantial economic support, stand by them, get the imf in there to give them short-term economic stability and there ought to be some kind of dramatic signal by the major foreign ministers of europe, and shicning an international spotlight on putin. the critontribut we need to cha there's a lot the administration can do to orchestrate at least an attempt to limit putin and drive up the cos

with a nationwide biofuel industry. we have contracts today under the defense production act that by 2016 with four biofuel companies assuming all of them make it through this process, they are contracted to provide us with about 163 million gallons a kwraoeryear at a good bit less than $4 a gallon, which is very competitive with oil and gas and domestically produced. all four have different feed stocks. i don't really care where it comes from. but it has budget advantages not the least of which gives our partners a new income stream for a short basis. it is any kind of technology from solar to wind geothermal hydrothermal, fuel cells that can use different kinds of fuel to power them. so our goal -- and i'm confident we are going to reach it -- is by 2020 at least half of all naval energy will come from non-fossil fuel sources. we have six years to do that. i think we are on track to get there. >> secretary again we are ahead of the budget but secretary hagel did release earlier this week out lineslines, some controversy about cost reductions -- not cost reductions

wisdom in the defense bar is, don't even think about resisting a government overtour for a plea in a corporate context, and now the government is just going with what are called dps, not even resolving cases criminally because that's too difficult, so the department of justice reaches a civil resolution. >> thank you. justice for the committee, i just think that something that we should think, especially on our side of the aisle -- as conservatives we should be very concerned about the state having so much power that criminal defense phones are afraid to go to trial because they know that actually they take more risk going to trial than defending liberty and property and the things that the government should not easily take away from defendants. thank you very much. i yield back my time. >> i'm told we'll be voting between 10:20 and 10:30. excuse me. gentleman from georgia, mr. johnson. >> thank you. it's not so much the sheer volume of criminal laws on the books and how they are apportioned among the various titles of the u.s. code. it's really a matter of what is the impact ov

earlier talking about revisiting putting u.s. missile defense in the czech republic. remember russia's response to that when we went through that a couple of years ago. that to this point is something we've not heard the administration is considering. >> and you're on the ground in kiev. what's the scene like there? how are people responding to what's going on in crimea? >> reporter: the government here is definitely very concerned, anderson. they see this as an invasion by the russians as a part of annex crimea as part of russia. they're looking at a diplomatic effort now. no doubt the ukrainance could not go blow to blow with the russians. they don't have the fire power that the russians do. so they're looking abroad. and that look goes towards the united nations. they're asking the u.n. security council to get involved. it's unclear what role they would play as russia as you know has veto power in the security council. and moscow has been concerned over the ethnic russians in the crimea. one thing the ukrainen government has asked to send monitors into the crimea to show ethnic ru
extortion to drug distribution. their attorney hinted at their potential defense argument if the case goes to trial. >> reporter: led by the head of the san francisco police officers association, officers edmond robles and yates left the court this morning. >> they're all hard working officers. they're dedicated to this department. they're dedicated to the citizens of this city. >> reporter: it's the offshoot of an investigation of a series of raids at hotel rooms by plain clothed officers. they were out there doing very, very serious work and dealing with some people that have no regards for the law. >> reporter: defense attorney michael raynes says that the investigation will have an effect on officers that do similar work. >> i know that one of those informants attempted to extort one of these officers. >> from what he tells me he provided actual evidence in the form of fingerprints and other types of hard evidence that was given to the federal investigators. >> reporter: all but one of the departments entered not guilty pleas. the sixth is waiting for a new attorney before entering h
the sovereign space of ukraine. we've heard defense secretary chuck hagel speaking for the united states in nato, saying this should be a time for caution and wise, diplomatic moves. but we have yet to hear, until now, from the president of the united states on this situation. president barack obama in the white house briefing room. >> over the last several days, the united states has been responding to events as they unfold in ukraine. throughout this crisis, we have been very clear about one fundamental principle, the ukrainian people deserve the opportunity to determine their own future. together with our european allies, we have urged an end to the violence and encouraged ukrainians to pursue a course in which they stabilize their country, forge a broadbased government, and move to elections this spring. i also spoke several days ago with president putin, and my administration has been in daily communication with russian officials. we've made clear that they can be part of an international communities effort to support the stability and success of a united ukraine going forward. which is not
with them. some of these candidacies were hrown out. so it means the minister of defense is a professional military man. e was supported by the people, and he is respected in the rmy. in the security, supporters from the opposition, his candidacy is supported by the people. and he used to be the chief of ecurity during a time. and the minister of the nterior. so people demonstrated their support, their full support in the ministry. they got those who were professional people. we count on that. the second question is very painful for me, because i don't want to think about any kind of military development around the settlement of the question. but i think -- i think we are strong enough to defend ourselves. we have a strong feeling, we have a spiritual feeling that we are right in what we are doing. >> can you talk about the resolution invoking the international criminal court? did this come up, and also the request to extradite mr. yanukovych back? what are the status of those actions? >> you can find the experts on how this works. well, it's not so easy to move directly. o what do we have
. ukraine's defense minister says 6,000 additional troops arrived here. all of this after president obama warned russia not to intervene in ukraine. >> the united states will stand with the international community affirming there will be costs for military intervention in ukraine. >> reporter: in crimea's capitol, the coup gathers pace. they control the army, navy and air force here. any commander that disagrees says the new prime minister should leave. beyond crimea's borders and along the frontier with ukraine, russia continues the biggest military exercise since the fall of the soviet union. 150,000 men maneuvering as president putin is now, to show their strength to the world. the streets are calm. the vote here, to decide who should rule has been brought forward to the end of the month. within weeks, crimea, always pro-russian could be free of ukrainian rule for good. well ukraine says it won't give into russian provocation and its troops are ready to respond. i think, truly, the idea or the possibility of a clash with russian troops is really pretty slim. this place is a kinder box

and convened a meeting of the national security and defense council on friday night, what's the latest? is>> the latest they are still meeting and trying to decide what to do. to give a perspective here the recent operation or the training mission as putin put it that the russian military is going on the ukraine an board has 130,000 troops. and the entire troops are 150 troops and that is why they are worried about what russia is doing. this government is 28, 29 hours old and the u.s. is desperate to face the challenges, political, economic that ukraine has but they are focussed on the south and crimea and the rhetoric is aggressive and the military can into the buildings and they are warning that the ukrainian military can go in and remove the troops. the ewe kranians are thinking they are russians. they haven't proven they are willing to back up the words with any military action there. they don't have a lot of options there and obama is coming out strong and secretary kerry coming out strong and it is unclear what the ukrainian government can do other than pass resolutions and release t
policy options going forward. participants in this meeting included defense secretary chuck hagel who spoke to his russian counterpart earlier today, cia director john brennan, joint chiefs chairman general martin dempsey and national intelligence director james clapper. we're just getting word that the president did not attend the meeting but that he was briefed on it later. in his remarks yesterday president obama warned that any violation of ukraine's sovereignty would be, quote, deeply destabilizing. >> just days after the world came to russia for the olympic games, it would invite the condemnation of nations around the world, and indeed the united states will stand with the international community in affirming that there will be costs for any military intervention in ukraine. >> vice president joe biden spoke yesterday with the ukrainian prime minister assuring him that the u.s. stands for, quote, the democratic future of ukraine. greg? >> well, we remember the president said there will be costs if syria uses chemical weapons, and in the end there were none. what kind of a reacti
that the pentagon and the joint chiefs, the secretary of defense right now are going through all the scenarios and the options for the use of force. clearly, it's premature for us to even talk about the use of force. however, it is a possible outcome and needs to be planned, and it is what i would describe very robust detail. so a lot of options are out there. clearly, the united states as a first order would have to have what's known as a command and control type capability so if a decision was made to apply force, it's going to be a joint force. all the services and the different combat and commands will be involved and it will require some element that will allow you to tie it all together. that's taking place right now in terms of discussions in what's known as warning orders, in order to posture us, to make sure we're prepared. but all this is premature because there are other elements of power that have to be addressed and have to be exhausted. if the united states has declared and determined that this is in their national interest to get involved in some way, or to simply allow this to
to a senior defense official, defense secretary chuck hagel, had a it telephone conversation with his counterpart today. we're still waiting to get details about what specifically was said during that conversation. but, of course, the white house monitoring the situation quite closely, in consultation with its partners abroad. for days, the administration has been warning russia against intervening in ukraine. of course, on friday, it was clear that that diplomatic strategy had failed, so president obama came out with a strong warning to russia not to ramp this up any further. he said there would be costs. here's a little bit more of what he had to say. take a listen. >> throughout this crisis, we have been very clear about one fundamental principle. the ukrainian people deserve the opportunity to determine their own future. together with our european allies, we have urged an end to the violence, and encouraged ukrainians to pursue a course in which they stabilize their country, forge a broad based government and move to elections this spring. >> reporter: so the president was fairly
federal position was at the defense department. i know you have not been at dhs long, but i'm sure you have noticed that the level of command and control to what you may have become uh cuss -- accustomed to is not at dhs. you experienced potentially damaging results of the structural defect. the fact that an acquisition solicitation was significant privacy implication was published without approval by dhs or the awareness of ice leadership is very troubling. your immediate predecessor promoted the concept of one dhs, one structural changes that persist to when 22 independent officers and agencies were essentially thrown together under one roof. as you have undoubtedly learned by now, dhs components essentially function as independent entities. all too often components see directors from headquarters as advisory. this has to stop. for one dhs to truly have meaning components must adhere to department-wide policies and mandates and i appreciate your position when the chairman and i had a meeting with you that you basically committed to making that happen as well as making sure that the v
to be real. don't be defensive. look for opportunities for humor. it's opportunity that people see more sides of you and often see you only in very stern situations. i'm not sure but, bill, but i don't recall a recent occasion when someone very close to me felt the need to remind me to be real. one last one. this was a list of hillary clinton's favorite reporters in essence that was compiled by one of her aides and sent to then first lady. again, in 1995, first on the list was terry hunt. now, he was the chief white house correspondent for the associated press. i knew him well when i used to cover the white house. and he is a good guy and a straight arrow but mrs. clinton's aide wrote to mrs. clinton he is a fan of yours. then, clocking in at number three was andrea mitchell of nbc news who was described as a former white house correspondent. who was replaced by brian williams. the memo said that nbc was grooming williams to take over for tom brokaw it said andrea now covers the state department. she is very aggressive. then comes claire shipman at number 4. at the time she was with cnn as th
. and he stated today publicly that he fully supports actions of self-defense units in crimea. and a definition of self-defense units is quite broad, including units provided by the russian black sea fleet. >> brown: angela stent, when the president says as we also heard that there would be costs to any military intervention, what might that mean? what sort of leverage would there be? >> that's a very interesting question. we do not have that much leverage with russia any more. our relationship with russia has deteriorated. there is not much russia wants from us. and so i think, and on the other hand we need to work with russia on the iranian question and the obama administration wants to achieve an agreement on iran, on syria, on all of these other issues. so there may be costs, there could be some kind of sanctions although even there there is a limited possibility. so i'm not really sure what those costs would be. >> brown: dmitri simes there is a lot of history, obviously with crimea, russia and ukraine, for our audience what should we foe about to help us understand this.
